So, I thought I’d take a moment and geek out a bit. I’m a huge fan of Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Game–book, not movie–and everyone knows that the villains are an alien race called Formics–or buggers.
My daughter is twenty months old, since I hate doing the math for other people’s kids, that’s a little over 1.5 years. In the past 2 months she’s gained a massive vocabulary and even started putting together 2 and 3 word sentences. One of my favorite words–and one she came up with completely on her own–is buggers. Anything that crawls along the ground or webs itself into the exterior of our windows is a bugger.
I’m totally smitten with this little quip and may not ever correct her.
